What Are E-Patterns and Instant Download E-Patterns???

What The......Are E-Patterns?????

From time to time (or always) I lose my head and forget to explain something. I just assume (which is a bad thing to do) that everyone is on the same wave length (that would be a nightmare) with me. Sometimes I forget that everyone isn't as familiar with computers and E-patterns as I am. So, I'd like to try and explain to all of you what E_PATTERNS are.

It's really very simple. They are complete patterns sent to you over the internet as a .PDF (portable document format) file which can be downloaded directly to your computer. Instead of being mailed to you via the U.S. Post Office they are either sent to you via Email or you can download them directly yourself (i.e. instant download e-patterns). No waiting for the postman to arrive anymore. Or, worrying that the dog is going to bite the postman. Or, don't get sidetracked, Linda.

Okay! Why would you want to order E-Patterns? First of all, you save time and money (both of which are a commodity these days). Time because you either get them instantly or you get them emailed within 24 hours. Money because E-Patterns COST A LOT LESS then regular patterns mailed via the post office.

Secondly, you can view or print them anytime you want with the FREE Adobe Acrobat Reader (FREE download available at

What do you get with an E-Pattern? Basically, if you order from me, you get a whole pattern just like it had been mailed to you, only sent to you electronically. Instead of receiving a whole printed pattern in a plastic envelope via the post office you receive the whole pattern electronically (minus the plastic envelope, of course).

How does it work?

Well, you can either order an e-pattern that is sent to you as an email attachment or you can "instantly download" an e-pattern yourself. If you order an emailed E-Pattern then an Email with a PDF (Portable Document Format) attachment is sent to you which you then need to download to your computer. If you "instantly download" an e-pattern then the .pdf file is instantly transmitted to you after payment has been made. You can then open and save the .pdf file to your computer. A confirmation email and the link to download the "instant download e-pattern" is also sent to you.

To view and print the E-Pattern you need to use Adobe Acrobat Reader 5.0 or higher. If you don’t have it the Adobe Acrobat Reader don't worry. It’s a FREE download from Adobe. Just go to

If you already have the Adobe Acrobat Reader 5.0 or higher then all you need to do is download the .PDF file attachment from your Email and then open it to view it. It will open in the Adobe Acrobat Reader program. You can then save it, view it or print it from Adobe Acrobat Reader. If you "instantly download" an e-pattern then the .pdf file is instantly transmitted to you after payment has been made. You can then open the file to view it, save it, or print it from Adobe Acrobat Reader.

Just think, you can save THOUSANDS of E-patterns on your computer. THOUSANDS of patterns! No more cluttering up all the drawers in your house. No more hundreds of boxes or plastic containers all over the house. Pattern organization. Progress is being made.

And the best part of all, you can REPRINT the pattern sheets OVER and OVER and OVER again. No more taping worn paper again. No more photocopying pattern sheets at work. REAL progress is being made, ladies. Now, if we could just get a woman elected president. Stop dreaming, Linda.
